Matt, Mitre, and Karen were awarded the Rackham Graduate Student Research Grant! Congratulations to our trainees!
Neuronal injury can cause mitochondrial damage, leading to reduced energy production, decreased Ca2+ storage capacity, and increased reactive oxygen species. A new study reveals a mechanism to trigger the axonal transport of previously anchored mitochondria and promote neuroprotection and axon regeneration by replacing damaged with functional mitochondria.
